Ssangyong's new B-segment crossover has been spotted testing in Europe ahead of a planned debut at the Geneva motor show next year.
Previewed since 2011 with concepts including the XLV and SIV-1, the X100 will compete with the likes of the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur when it goes on sale towards the middle of next year.
The X100 will again be previewed with a concept car at the Paris motor show in October. However, while previous concepts have only hinted at the car's styling this final concept will be very close to the production model.
It's understood that Ssangyong's plan for the X100 will be to launch a five seat model first, before following up with a longer wheelbase version with seven seats soon after. The X100 is set to ride on a newly-developed platform.
Power for the X100 will come from a range of new four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. Both will be Euro 6 emissions compliant, and will come connected to either a six-speed manual transmission or optional 6-speed CVT. A hybrid variant, which combines the diesel engine with a lithium ion battery, is also being considered.
